Assembly of e-bike - can I do it?

    I've been given a present of a Raleigh EVO ebike

    It has been given to me boxed. How difficult is this going to be to assemble? Do I need to buy any specific tools to do this? (Please assume I have zero knowledge of assembling a bike)

    Also, on an additional note. What sort of lock should I consider getting for this? I am based in Athlone at the moment but moving to Carrick-on-Shannon in the next few weeks once a house sale completes. I'm not going to be leaving the bike unattended for hours but want it to be safe if I pop into a shop for 20mins.

    i suspect it will be a case of attaching the pedals and handlebars and the like, which likely will need a spanner for the pedals and probably an allen bolt for the rest.

    the most complicated part would be (if you have to attach the pedals) is that one of them switches the 'lefty loosy, righty tighty' way of screwing things in.

    best buy a decent D-lock; you should be able to get them in any bike shop, or halfords; possibly even in a woodies or similar.

    Thanks for that help. I opened the box and it was actually fully assembled. I just had to unfold it.
